Makeup Tips For Women Wearing Glasses

Posted on: 15 March 2016

If you've always worn glasses, you may already know how to wear your makeup. If, however, you just recently started wearing eyewear, you may not know how to balance your makeup with your new accessory. You have to remember that your eyeglasses are not only going to help you see better, they can also attract attention to things like dark under-eye circles and makeup creases. They may even make some of your better features disappear behind your frames. See below for some makeup tips so you can rock your new eyewear.

Play Up Your Eyes

Play up your eyes, especially if you have a classic, thin eyeglass frame. Highlight your eyes by using eyeliner on both the upper and lower lids. Use shimmery shadow on the upper lid, as well as a nice neutral color on the lower lid to make your eyes pop. Use mascara that gives your lashes bulk, but not a lot of length. Too much length and you'll feel like your lashes are touching your lenses. Use a highlighter beneath your eyes, as your eyeglasses may cast a shadow beneath your eyes (making it look like you have circles under your eyes).

Create Bold Lips

Make your lips center stage by applying a color to make them pop. If you have bold frames, a bolder lip will help balance out your bigger frames. If you have red frames, you can match your lipstick to your frames.

Highlight Cheeks

Play up your cheeks by applying highlighter and bronzer to contour your cheeks, then add blush to enhance this feature and to show off your cheekbones beneath your frames. Apply highlighter to the top of your cheeks, as well as to your under-eyes, chin, forehead and down the center of your nose. Then apply bronzer down your temples, beneath your cheekbones and down the sides of your nose.

Blend the highlighter and bronzer so you no longer see the definite lines. Then apply cream or powder blush to the apples of your cheeks and up to the temples. Be sure to blot your makeup when finished, as you don't want your frames sticking to your makeup or sliding down your nose due to your makeup.

Just because you wear eyeglasses doesn't mean you can't wear any makeup at all. You just need to keep it simple, enhancing just one feature at a time to keep your look clean and well-put-together. For more information about eyewear, contact a company like Gerald A York Opticians.
